About Knowledge Avatars

When I was in elementary school, there was one summer when I was terrified! By the end of the last school year, I had not yet memorized the Times Table, and I knew that my teacher would quiz me at the beginning of the new school year. I imagined disappointment, embarrassment, and humiliation. That sums up why I decided to devote my life to making learning more effective.

In college, I migrated from a Bachelor's in cognitive psychology to a Master's in educational psychology and a love for technology. I knew that improving education at scale was to intersect educational pedagogy with technology. So I brought together some of the top minds in learning, artificial intelligence, and educational technology to develop strategies for using technology to improve education. Over the years, I published over thirty e-Learning products published by Prentice-Hall, Inc., and LifeLong.com. These products won international awards, including an honorable mention from the U.S. government's Information and Infrastructure Awards and Top Ten Educational Software in China from the Chinese Department of Education.

But I wanted something better. As envisioned by futurist Alan Kay, I wanted a digital tutor at my fingertips!

I did not want to replicate the classroom online. Instead, I wanted to give students a tool to make learning easier.


So, I built Knowledge Avatars, a platform to create AI-powered tutors that delivers your knowledge. In addition, the platform makes it easy for any expert to create and deploy their Knowledge Avatars.


Welcome to the future of learning!
